Enhancing care services for people with dementia
The Bournemouth University Dementia Institute (BUDI) was established in May 2012 with a mission to make a positive influence on the lives of people with dementia. BUDI is made up of a multidisciplinary team that provides education, consultancy and evaluation, and research on a range of topics. One theme of BUDI is concerned with enhancing services that provide health and social care for people with dementia and their carers. This talk will present the findings of two studies under this theme.
The first study explored the social care needs of people with dementia who also have a visual impairment. Interviews with people in their own homes illuminated areas where services could be improved. The second study evaluated a service that supports people with dementia and their carers who are living at home. Interviews with staff and service users from the urban and rural areas identified important differences in how these two social care services operated, and the implications on care provision.
The talk will end by briefly mentioning current work under this theme and this year’s new Masterclasses and Master’s degree in dementia.
It would be great to see you all today to listen to what’s going to be a very interesting talk about BUDI’s research. Just to give you that little bit more incentive to come along, there will be tokens for the first 30 audience members to be exchanged for a FREE individual Papa Johns Pizza at the end of the talk, plus lots of free tea & coffee, water & juices – don’t miss out!
